We Bengalis are very interesting people. You can categorize Bengalis especially those who are currently staying in West Bengal / Kolkata because of their interests. There are Ghotis (who are Indian Bengalis) and there are Bangals (who are Bangladeshi Bengalis) but moved t o India during partition of Bengal. There are those who are supporters of Mohunbagan and others are supporters of East Bengal in football. In religion there are Hindus, Muslims, Christians, and Buddhists. In terms of politics there are people who support CPIM (Communist Party of India ), while some supports Congress and other who support Trinamool Congress. There are babus who work in government jobs while some work in IT and other private jobs. Some love to eat Bengali food while some love to go to Pizza Hut for Pizzas and similar modern foods.
There are people who love their Bangaliana (Bengalihood) while some are there who hate it even though they call themselves Bengali and carry their forefather’s surname. There are people who love Kolkata and Bengal while there are some who love any other place in the world other than Bengal. In caste there are Brahmins, Baidyas, Kshatriyas, Benes (Baniyas), Vaidyas, Shudras, SCSTs and OBCs. There are some who love Krishna, Rama, Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Maa Durga, Maa Kali, Maa Saraswati even though they do or do not belong to that religion.
There are lazy Bengalis while there are very active Bengalis Sourav Gangulys and Monotosh Aichs. There are Bengalis who do not have any ambitions while there are Bengalis who are successful like Amartya Sen. There are Bengalis who like to work under others in jobs while there are others who are Business minded like Subrata Roy. There are singers like Kishore Kumar, Manna Deys while there are non-singer Bengalis too. There are actors like Uttam Kumar while there are people who cannot act too. There are politicians like Didi (Mamata Banerjee) while there are other politicians like Buddhadeb Bhattacharya and Pranab Babu.Thus in spite of all such differences we all are Bengalis and should remain as Bengalis and try to do betterment for our community. Bengali is the 5th largest spoken language ion the whole world. So in all such differences we Bengalis should be united in so much diversity. So let us say together “Banglar Jai, Bangalir Jai”. “Bangaliana” live forever.
